Louisiana Metal miscreants, GOATWHORE, will celebrate the release of their mammoth Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length with a meet and greet next week at the world-famous Grill ‘Em All brick and mortar restaurant in Alhambra, California! The event will commence at 7:00 pm on Wednesday July 16th. Fans will get to hang with the band, hear the record in full as well as purchase a copy if they haven’t already. Additionally, Grill ‘Em All will add to the unholy revelry with special Constricting Rage Of The Merciless fries – Hand cut fries smothered in creole gumbo with chicken, smoked sausage, and shrimp! Come hungry.

On the following day in San Francisco, GOATWHORE will kick off a near month-long stretch of live incursions as part of The Summer Slaughter tour alongside Death Metal legends Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Fallujah and more!

Goatwhore - Constricting Rage Of The Merciless - promo cover

The band is currently slaying stages in support of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, out TODAY on Metal Blade Records. Heaving forth ten mutinous tracks of thick, unadulterated, subterranean metal, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless isat once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Inarguably GOATWHORE‘s most sonically consuming, meticulously executed manifestation of their catalog of chaos, the critical fuck yeahs from fans and media alike are literally flooding in. In an 8/10 score, Decibel Magazine crowns the record, “a blasphemous blast,” in a 9.5/10 rating, Dead Rhetoric christens it, “a masterful work of extreme metal,” while Headbangorgtfo.com dubs Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, “an instant classic,” awarding it a perfect 5/5.

Elsewhere, Metal Injection names it, the new high water mark of the group’s work thus far,” Planet Mosh commends GOATWHORE‘s seamless ability to fuse “everything from hyperspeed melodic black metal (reminiscent of underground guys like Noctuary), to thrash metal’s crunch, to death metal’s ‘kill first, ask questions later’ ethos,” furthering that, “polished, deliberate bayou evil permeates each well-crafted tune,” while Exclaim gushes in an 8/10 review, “GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering in no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence.” Killyourstereo agrees applauding, “an entirety evil and enticing record. The perfect use of vocal ranges from low and aggressive growls to higher notes further adds to the tone, while the dynamic changes and scattered guitar solos add some complexity.”

DENVER BLACK SKY – Announces Lineup Additions And World Domination

Posted in metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Denver Black Sky - promo festival flyer - 2014 - #1001

Earlier this week, DENVER BLACK SKY – set to take place August 2nd and 3rd at the Gothic Theatre and Moe’s BBQ – revealed on their official Facebook page plans to extend the lineup of their two-day, three-stage event with three additional acts. Wild speculation began almost immediately with fans throwing out the names of bands they dreamed to see and now the secret is out.

The doers of the event are pleased to welcome Mexican death grind perpetrators, Rottenness, who feature within their ranks Mile High City metal veteran Ben Pitts on vocals. The band will drag their own special brand of filthtified death metal to the DBS stage on Saturday.

Also making their way to the ceremony of chaos is Los Angeles powerviolence troupe Maladjusted whose female-empowered, vegan hardcore will only add more punk angst to an already crusty Sunday.

Finally, DENVER BLACK SKY welcomes iconic grindcore/crust combatants, Nausea, to their riotous bill. Born into the emotional wasteland known as Los Angeles, Nausea has been spreading their sonic disease since 1987 and will grace the stage Sunday evening.

_____________________________
